… good news. We hope. My apologies for not posting inHeritage news updates for May and June. We’ve simply been too busy to find time to update the news section. Which does count as good news.
The highlights of the last two months have been:
Bill toured Scotland for two weeks in May to work on his next book – Walk Into the Dark Ages. He covered hundreds of miles, from Dumfries to Shetland, Aberdeen to Iona, visiting and photographing Dark Ages sites.
The Hunter Archaeological Society Centenary Weekend was a roaring success in mid May.
The Lune Aqueduct Digital Memories project is up and running, and the first oral history interviews should be done this month.
Hope and Castleton historical societies have been making some interesting discoveries in the record offices. The wet weather delayed the landscape survey work, which is now well under way along with the test pits.
The first Calver Weir oral history interviews have been undertaken and the first podcast should be online within the next couple of weeks.
We’ll endeavour to keep you updated with July’s news as it happens.
